Never Too Late to Go Vegan

The Over-50 Guide to Adopting and Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet

Never Too Late to Go Vegan


"Never Too Late to Go Vegan is, somewhat amazingly to me, the first-ever guide for everyone over 50 who wants to or already does eat and live vegan. It’s a book I’d been looking to publish for a number of years, and then a proposal by Carol, Patti, and Ginny materialized in my inbox earlier this year. These three authors make a superlative case for the benefits of plant-based eating and living when one is over 50. And they provide a handbook to vegan living that goes well beyond diet tips. Here is a thoughtful and wide-ranging consideration of the benefits, and the consequences, of a plant-based diet—for oneself, one’s loved ones, animals, and the planet. It’s an all-in-one resource that I believe arrives at an ideal moment, as more and more people – including over-50s – are embracing plant-based eating and living."

This is my new favorite book. Its nutritional knowhow comes from science, not opinion. The recipes are tasty and healthy and unintimidating. Its ethical underpinnings arise from the real-life commitment of three wise women who were vegan before it was cool – and whose wit and savvy give me the feeling they’ve been cool all along.
